Event announcement from the U.S. Access Board

Location: Online

People with disabilities face significant barriers to accessing primary and preventative healthcare. It is vital for medical care facilities and equipment, such as exam rooms and tables, diagnostic instruments and machines, and patient bedrooms and bathrooms, to be fully accessible to people with disabilities. The U.S. Access Board will host a virtual public event on equity in healthcare for people with disabilities on January 12 from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. (ET). The event will feature presentations on standards and resources related to healthcare accessibility, including inclusive medical equipment, healthcare facility design, information technology, and communication devices and systems. Members of the public will be able to pose questions during the event.  

The event is free, but registration is required. For further information on registration, visit the Access Board’s website or contact Rose Marie Bunales at events@access-board.gov. The event will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. 

Prior to the event, the Board will hold its regular business meeting from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. (ET), which is also open to the public.
